Freshly washed.

I had these hemmed along with my 666Ds since I'm mainly focusing on my XHSib at the moment. Loving the clean look.

Your pics will encourage me to follow suit. Guess that clean look isn’t prevalent in the forum? Please post any other examples you’ve ‘cleaned up’!
Good stuff!
The journey is the objective.

These jeans have become my summer project so I hope to have something worth showing in a few weeks. Ever since I got them hemmed I haven't wanted to wear any other jeans.

I had the 634 in this denim and moved them on, only because they were a little large. The denim is really beautiful and even though mine didn’t have loads of wear, the potential for a really lovely pair of jeans was certainly there.

The fabric is certainly one of the most unique IH fabrics. The texture and the fast fading properties are awesome. Looking at @Giles pair is good inspiration to really put some time in.

Been wearing these every day for the past month. They're at about two months of regular wear now and coming along nicely. I'm going to keep wearing them but I need to add some other pairs into my rotation because I don't have the discipline to only wear one pair for long periods of time.

That roping is very nice indeed. I really like the way it is spaced.

I’m tempted by the 634 again. It really isn’t my cut, but sizing down in a pair may help and this denim needs to be on my legs...

Do it! The richness of this particular shade of indigo is somethin' else.

The roping wasn't too noticeable until the wash. I had them hemmed at Indigo Proof a few months ago and I didn't think they would get that twist but I'm glad it's here now.

I find myself thinking about them a lot, like when I'm laying in bed at night. All this time alone at home with the pandemic has really ramped up my obsession with denim.

I'm wearing the IHJ-51, Type II out of the same denim, at the moment - loving it....

Do you have any of those for sale? I'd love a 3x or 4x... It would fulfill my dream of being able to dress like Martin Sheen in Badlands.

There are a few in Japan, but they max out at XXL over there, I am afraid.  They do run a little large.....But XX may be pushing it for you....

Ah yeah, just a tad too short and tight in the chest. Thanks for the info.
